Calculate Your Lo Shu Number

Aug 17, 2007
Hsia Yu was a famous Chinese prehistoric personality. One day he came across some very interesting markings on the shell of a giant tortoise. The giant tortoise came out from the River Lo in Central China. This became Lo Shu. The word 'Lo' means river and the term 'Shu' indicate books. Different Lo Shu numbers indicates different directions which are believed to be auspicious.

Feng Shui helps one analyze their destiny with regards to the Five Chinese Elements. The five elements as per the Feng Shui are:
a. Earth
b. Water
c. Fire
d. Wood, and
e. Metal

Lo Shu Numbers and the auspicious directions:
1 - North
2 - Southwest
3 - East
4 - Southeast
5- Central
6 - Northwest
7 - West
8 - Northeast
9 - South.

Each of the five elements is associated with a particular number.
Water Element - 1
Earth Element - 2, 5, 8
Wood Element - 3, 4
Metal Element - 6, 7
Fire Element - 9

The grid that is used for calculating this number is a 3 X 3 magic square in which the sum of the three numbers add up to 15 - row wise, column wise and diagonally. This is an ancient Chinese grid that shows man's interaction with the five elements such as Earth, Water, Fire, Wood and Metal. As per the Feng Shui principles all the elements are needed for a prosperous life are analyzed on the basis of the date of birth.

The grid is created on the basis of the date of birth of an individual. It helps to give a clear view of what the destiny and the life has in store for that individual. The MB Free Feng Shui Lo Shu is an interactive program. It is very simple to use and interpret and it also gives remedial measures for the missing elements.

By entering the date of birth, the missing element and its effect on the concerned person is ascertained. Each digit in a person's birth date is associated with the corresponding element and the missing factor is known. Remedial measures to counter the lack of elements for the person are also suggested by the MB Free Feng Shui Lo Shu Software. Each of the squares that make up the Lo Shu is the palace and the three numbers in each palace are the Stars. The positions of the Stars in the Lo Shu indicate those areas of life which may be affected.
